Evanton is one of several quiet settlements in the southern part of the county. There is a very unusual monument prominently located on the top of nearby Cnoc Fyrish – follow a steep, well-marked path to get a closer look.
Tain, further north, is Scotland’s oldest royal burgh where you can wander through its atmospheric streets lined with historic buildings, drop in to the museum to see the exhibits and visit the Clan Ross Centre, shop for exquisite local arts and crafts, buy some treats in a traditional bakery, take a tour of Glenmorangie Distillery and play golf on the links course that was designed by Old Tom Morris.
Extending east of Tain, the Tarbat Peninsula juts out into the North Sea. Its shoreline is dotted with pretty fishing villages: Nigg, Balintore, Shandwick, Hilton and Portmahomack. One of the tallest lighthouses in the UK stands at its tip. Hike the 14km circular trail, or take one of the shorter forest or coastal rambles. And don’t miss the fascinating Tarbat Visitor Centre, site of the first known Pictish monastery in the Highlands.
